    Well done on a good result then Brian. I suspect one would still be considered as a spiced mead but t'other would be considered a spiced orange wine......

    Not surprised to read that the syrup version is sweeter and slightly more orangey though. After all, it doesn't have the non-sugar part of the bee vomit in it ;-D

    I've been thinking about doing one with a laboratory stirrer, just too see how much drier it turns out. Might have to try both versions now.......

    And secondly, as far as I'm aware, Joe Mattioli isn't dead. He still posts occasionally over at Gotmead, last seen about August last....

    A complete faux pas. I mis-interpreted the title as a 'days gone by' recipe attributed to Joe. Sorry Joe.

    I guessed others would have fermented syrup, I thought it an ideal time to try - side by side.
    Can you recommend an syrup recipes.
    PS I also have an abundance of molasses. Hmmm ... and apple paste.

    Ancient Joe would turn in his grave

    Forgive me JHB for I have sinned ( in the name of research )

    Yesterday I made up my second batch of Joe Mattioli's Ancient Orange and Spice Mead. sticking to the recipe apart from fresh yeast and two cloves instead of one.

    2am this morning I woke up in a sweat - sat bolt upright in bed - "why not make some mead from syrup and see if there is a difference!! '

    You may recall I have a bucket of syrup, and up until this point I have had nothing to do with it.

    Are we going to run a book on how we think it will come out?

    Answers gentlemen please..........
Working...
